A happy tongue is the starting point to a healthy body.
If you think about it - your tongue is the first touch point to everything. It's the gateway to all things that go into your body!
Anything you eat, drink, swallow - it all has to pass through the tongue. So, it should be no surprise that scraping your tongue can help with boosting your immune system and your overall health.
How you ask?
Let's Start with the most obvious!
1) Removing 6 Billion Bacteria
Your mouth is a hot pot for bacteria and germs... Over 6 billion bacteria , including 700 different species. Is that enough to make you shudder?! Yeah, us too!
Tongue scraping helps you remove those bacteria and germs. When that happens you get rid of your bad breath.
2) Removing Bad Breath = A Clean Fresh Mouth & Breath
Halitosis (bad breath) is mostly caused by sulphur-producing bacteria that normally live on the surface of the tongue and in the throat. Those 700 different species we just talked about!
Sometimes, these bacteria start to break down proteins at a very high rate and odorous volatile sulphur compounds (VSC) are released from the back of the tongue and throat.
3) Eliminating Sinus Infections and Blocked Noses
Sinus infections are a bummer. Drinking a lot of water helps thin out the mucus that builds up in your sinuses. Water makes it easier for the mucus to drain as it get's thinner.
Tongue scraping is a great way to prevent bad breath caused by sinus infections and from the mucus build up.
